Review quote

"Beginners will likely find The Videomaker Guide to Video Production to be a helpful introduction to core principles, and even seasoned video professionals might find value in it as a well-organized reference guide. The upside of the tome's brief chapters is that the contents make it easy to jump right to a specific subject without wasting time paging back and forth." - American Cinematographer magazine
